John Bolton, during a 2005 Senate confirmation process, was accused by a female government contractor of harassing 'her relentlessly,' chasing her around a hotel, criticizing her weight and 'hinting' she was a lesbian. Melody Townsel described his behavior in a 2005 letter to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee when he was under consideration for the UN Ambassador position. 'Mr. Bolton proceeded to chase me through the halls of a Russian hotel—throwing things at me, shoving threatening letters under my door and, generally, behaving like a madman,' she wrote.(Snip) Bolton left the Bush administration under a cloud.

Comments:

Seems the mustache man wasn't especially popular with the W administration.

Thank God the leftist press in UK still hates Bolton. The media over here will go right back to hating his guts as soon as his usefulness to drag this impeachment out subsides.

Now this is getting comical: "'Hey, fatso! Listen to me, you two-ton lesbian!!'" Are those the words of the would-be saboteur of Mr. Trump's presidency? Tune in at 11 for the latest in Bolton gossip!"

#6, I was a fan of John Bolton at one time, but no more. Not because of this article but because he had the audacity to turn on the man who gave him an opportunity he desperately wanted but that he evidently blew quite spectacularly. I appears that Mr. Bolton took too much upon himself and did not listen to his employer. The President made it clear that he did not want to be involved in these endless wars and if Bolton did not agree with that, then he should have declined the offer of employment. I would hate to think he was so arrogant that he believed he could come into the administration and set foreign policy and bend the President to his will. However, this display of pique is quite irresponsible coming at this time. The country is sailing in dangerous waters thanks to this fiasco of impeachment and to disregard the potential damage he is doing by writing the book at this time is simply unforgivable. I cannot believe the treachery that seems to be part and parcel of this corrupt city. John Bolton in my opinion is lacking in honor. If that sounds too much like a democrat, so be it. It is the truth.

CPAC doesn’t want Sen. Mitt Romney’s shadow darkening the door at its annual conference.

West Palm Beach — Law enforcement officials say they have a 30-year-old woman in custody after the SUV she was driving breached a security checkpoint at President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort. Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw identified Friday’s intruder as Hannah Roemhild. He says she wasn’t “even remotely close" to getting into the “inner perimeter" of the resort in Palm Beach. Bradshaw says Roemhild was impaired. He says when officers first approached her, she was inside her car and would not respond when they tapped on the window. Officers finally smashed through the window glass and she drove away.

Mitt Romney is stoking suspicions that he is eyeing a third White House bid in 2024 after the Utah Republican broke with his party and insisted on witnesses at President Trump’s impeachment trial in the Senate. Along with centrist Susan Collins of Maine, Romney was one of just two Senate Republicans to join the Democrats in a failed vote to subpoena fresh testimony. The 2012 Republican presidential nominee might yet acquit Trump on two articles alleging abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, but consistent criticism of Trump throughout impeachment, a GOP rarity, capped by support for witnesses has some Republicans convinced Romney is jockeying to reclaim the party.
